I am Okino

In the digital world of Prime Empire. Okino spent his entire existence training around his house in the Forest of Discontent. When gamers started entering Terra Karana, players came through the Arcade Pod. Okino would treat them as his master and would guide them through the forest. The first player who came was a cocky newbie gamer, who wasted all four of his lives and becomes cubed. The ashamed Okino believed he had failed him and put his sword in the ground as a tribute to his fallen master. Over time player after player came and died and Okino put their swords near his house as a memorial. Okino started to lose all hope and stopped training has hard and became lazier. When a successful samurai and his sage master came Okino realized he needed a more positive attitude, So he trained harder awaiting a new gamer. When an adventure-ready woman came, Okino successfully led her through the forest. She made it further then any other of Okino's masters and she made it to the top of the Cliffs of Hysteria but was taken by a giant bird, losing her last life as a result. Okino put her sword into the ground and regretted that he had failed and that his name would be known for failure, He swore not to guide anyone else to their doom. But then the Ninja came out of the arcade pod and he agreed to help them find the Purple Key-Tana.

The Glitch

Okino guided the Ninja through the forest until they were ambushed by the Whack Rats. The tied up Ritchie and he told them about a glitch they could use to get through the forest. Okino did not understand that Prime Empire was a video game, so he was shocked to see the digital glitch. The Ninja and Okino entered the glitch and were ambushed by Red Visors as it was a trap set by Unagami. The Ninja lost seven of their lives as a result, and Okino saved them by fighting off the Red Visors. The Ninja left the glitch to the end of the forest and Okino came with them. Okino was sad to discover the true nature of his world and the Ninja cheered him up saying he could be a friend of theirs, and they would need his help as they didn't have many lives left.
